    23 x 17.5 in.
    Not signed

    Estimate: $30,000 and up

    From the Glynn and Suzanne Crain Collection

    This illustration was used as the cover for The World Jones Made by Philip K. Dick (Ace Books, 1956). Dick's earliest novels were published in the renowned Ace Double paperback series, and these first edition cover paintings for the famed author are both very scarce and highly desirable. This painting has long been credited to Schulz by generations of art and paperback collectors, as well as Ace checklists such as the online Ace Image Library. However, the painting is unsigned, the book itself does not provide an artist identification, and there are certain stylistic similarities to the work of other science fiction illustrators of the era.

    More Information: Very light overall surface dirt; otherwise, no major visible condition issues to note. Framed under acrylic to 30.5 x 25.25 inches.
